If you are not concerned with cross browser compatibility, then IE has some
great print customization features that will allow you to configure the
header whichever way you like.

Also, I would look at the css specification : www.w3.org/Style/CSS . While
visiting that site a couple of days back, I remember seeing something about
pagination using CSS (for the print media). Be warned, CSS is very dependent
on the browser ("client") and its interpretation of the CSS.  I would test
it with all your possible browser/platform combos to make sure it worked.
